Dishes look amazing on the menu. We got a fish PACKED with bones but no meat, which they refused to take back. We ordered two bottles of sparkling water for which they look charged 290 Hryvnia (retail price is 20) and some other stuff. Nothing...More

I was in Kiev for 2+ weeks, so I ate here twice. I thought it was very delicious. Both times I got the blue & yellow dumplings, and chicken Kiev, of course. Within walking distance of many tourist attractions

We came here for dinner few times and it has been always excellent. Loved Chicken Kiev and the whole small chicken cooked in butter. Nice outdoors seating, very pleasant staff and very good service. Highly recommended for an authentic meal while visiting Kiev!

Great restaurant in Kiev. They serve a nice mixture of traditional Ukranian food mixed with modern touches. I ended up going there twice with my girlfriend due to the high quality of the food. The staff is nice and attentive.

We were optimistic about our night out at Spotykach, but left disappointed. On arrival, we were excited. The restaurant has cultivated a good look, what seems to be a slightly tongue-in-cheek style, and the menu is impressive by its size, its look and its unique...More

Seems like a place only for the tourists. I wonder if any locals ever eat there. The food was ok, but nothing special. Average service.

Yes, Spotykach really be proud! With such care together under one cover the most famous culinary hits of the Soviet era have not for everyone. Here is what restaurant critics over the years will be called "Ukrainian cuisine of the Soviet period," and the mere process of reading the menu is wild appetite. Salad leaves traditional herring under a fur coat, Olivier, Mimosa Capital, salad with beans and a dozen names. Then begins an even more pleasant discoveries. Take, for example, herring with anchovies on potatoes with onions or perch with mushrooms, fried pancakes. Sated fangled delights metropolitan restaurants audience inevitably return to the simple joys that are certain to become trump card Spotykach.
